Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 23 April 2019 – JRC/Alphatron Marine is proud to have received the full EC-type Examination certificate for the new AlphaPilot MFM Series.
Thanks to our experience and feedback of our customers and engineers, we designed our new AlphaPilot MFM as a modular system with standard components that makes it easy to install, commission and to maintain. The new AlphaPilot MFM had to be deployable as a heading control system up to an advanced and complex autopilot system with multiple positions and a control main steering.
Our new adaptive autopilot features a 5-inch touch display with the hardware and software based on our uniform product philosophy, creating a consistent bridge and operational approach. The AlphaPilot MFM is an intelligent system that is scalable from an standalone autopilot up to a full main steering system, controlling single, double rudders, azimuth thrusters, waterjets etc. And is configurable without the need of additional interface boxes, in case the mentioned propulsion systems are compatible with respect to i/o. The MFM autopilot is connectable to the installed bow thruster in order to keep the bow of the vessel head up when sailing dead slow or in case the vessel is stopped. The system is fully adaptive and can be quite easily put into operation the parameters are altered on the base of loading characteristics.
A track steering function Cat A is standard included and can be supplied as type approved Cat C track steering into a certified IBS combination. Rate of turn steering is also included as standard function, making it possible to navigate at shallow rivers at a constant rate. In case of low speed sailing, a low speed heading control function is available making use of the tunnel or bow thrusters.
In order to compose a full system, a full range of Can Bus accessories are available like tillers, handwheel and intelligent selector switches for steering position selection like wing steering. The AlphaPilot MFM is a valuable addition to our ProLine package.

Stena Line officer enthusiastic about practical Alphatron ECDIS training
10 febrero 2014 - With some reluctance Stena Line navigation officer Richard Forson took part in the Alphatron Marine ECDIS training at the beginning of October 2013. His experience of similar training a few years ago left a lot to be desired: tedious and dull. However, within a couple of minutes of a warm welcome at Alphatron’s headquarters in Rotterdam, he soon became convinced that he was in the right place this time around.Leer más
